Aargh, SFSget bug in Easy 0.9.9

November 24, 2018 — BarryK

Murphy's Law strikes! After releasing EasyOS 0.9.9 this morning, was playing with SFSget and found a killer bug.

Here is the 0.9.9 announcement:

The bug is easy to fix. I am not going to re-build 0.9.9, so could you kindly apply this fix manually, before using "sfsget" (icon at top of screen). Open this file with Geany text editor:


And look at line 41:

 if [ "$HASH" != "$aDB_hash" ];then #181124

...the "a" is missing. Please insert it, and save the file. Bug fixed.

I discovered this when downloading 'kodi' SFS, which has 'xenialpup' dependency -- the dependency SFS reported a hash failure. That missing letter caused the bug!
